In 2000-2001, in Moscow took place the global mail-art project “Sewers of the World, Unite!”. And its foundation beczme the manhole photos from around the world, as well as the author’s interpretation of the theme in the form of creative projects and facilities.
Located in a completely incomprehensible places, manholes have become an integral part of the city streets. We pass by, without even noticing them –
on the road, or right on the sidewalks. Meanwhile, if the manholes are on the road – they perform utilitarian function. However, with sidewalks the story is different. Noteworthy, manholes on the pedestrian zone can not be ugly, because tourists judge about the city by design of the manholes as well. And in the cities where people love and respect their place of living, the manholes can be a real piece of art.
